Hillary Clinton’s post-convention bounce runs into a familiar wall: Emails – Los Angeles Times

Friday could have marked the end of what has been arguably the best week of Hillary Clinton’s campaign.

But instead of capitalizing on the momentum, she tripped up again on her political Achilles’ heel — emails — before an audience she has kept at arm’s length over the last 16 months — journalists.

Speaking at a gathering of black and Latino reporters and editors in Washington, Clinton struggled to reconcile her previous public statements about the handling of sensitive information over a private email server with the critical assessment offered by the director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation.
